The US House of Representatives just passed the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act banning abortions after 20 weeks, with exceptions for the most extreme cases, but with no exceptions for victims of rape or incest who did not report their assaults to the authorities, and with no exceptions for situations in which the woman’s health is threatened by her pregnancy.
Can someone please explain to me why a man can take out a shotgun on his porch and choose to end someone’s life if he feels his wellbeing is threatened – and this is protected by law – while a woman cannot get a medical abortion of a fetus inviable outside the womb to protect her own wellbeing? There’s no debate that it’s terrible to end a life no matter the reasons or circumstances, which is why it’s a choice not to be taken lightly. But why the grave internal inconsistency, America?
